About Tara

My name is Tara. I have been teaching Spanish and English for the past twenty two years in both public and private school. I am at my best and most happy when teaching the subjects I love, Spanish and English. I have also been tutoring Spanish high school students in Regents courses for approximately eight years. I am very energetic, patient, and kind. I believe in using many types of strategies and materials to make my students successful. I have collected many materials from conferences I have attended.

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
